Grade 8 Up This funny, touching novel tells the story of Jack Karlstad, a 17 year old living in a dying Colorado mining town. Jack's dad was killed in Vietnam when Jack was four, and Jack has yet to resolve the pain he feels over this loss. When his rich friend, Wendell, offers Jack a free trip to California, he jumps at the chanceeven if it endangers his relationship with his girlfriendso that he can track down some of his dad's army buddies. In the midst of a series of madcap adventuressetting a motel toilet on fire, for exampleJack "discovers" the person who was his father, accepts him and forgives him for dying. The land around him has always been important to Jack; in accepting his father's death, he begins to appreciate his fellow humans. Bograd has written an entertaining and moving storyone filled with beautifully written descriptions of the land and of the people Jack meets. The language is sometimes rough, and the talk about sex is frequent and crude, yet this is a generally well-written novel with an important message.
